A Year Ago Today… Thank you Facebook for the Daily Reminders

“What a difference a day makes. Twenty-four little hours…”
—Maríah Grever, translated by Stanley Adams.

Life is short. Unless you’re in the midst of a living hell, then even a second can be horrendous and appear forever long. But for us average folks, life is crazy short. Continue reading A Year Ago Today… Thank you Facebook for the Daily Reminders


Silhouette: Sunrise vs Sunset

Can you tell just by looking at an image if it’s a sunrise or a sunset? Do you need to see the setting to know, and judge by the activity, or can you just sense it by the color?

I wonder. Personally I know I much prefer to witness a sunrise than a sunset. Maybe it’s because I’m a glass half-full kind of person, and a sunrise screams new beginnings. Continue reading Silhouette: Sunrise vs Sunset

One Word Photo Challenge: Maroon (A Boater’s Nightmare)

This word, maroon, reminds me of Bugs Bunny when Daffy duck yells out to Bugs “You’re such a maroon!” Of course we all know what he meant to say. I use this term a lot. People assume it’s because I’m French that I don’t know the difference. People are such maroons sometimes, aren’t they? Continue reading One Word Photo Challenge: Maroon (A Boater’s Nightmare)

Weekly Photo Challenge: Let There Be Light in México!

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Let there be light… Cool topic. WIthout light, not only is there no life, but there is no photography to capture said life. Living on a boat I live by the sun’s hours. On most days, I lay in bed waiting for the sun to rise. Not this morning though, I woke up at 7:12 am and felt like I was a total slug sleeping in.


  1. The bumble bee hive lights were above our table on the night we decided to have a sudden date. I was grumbling because I couldn’t find adequate internet in my new location allowing me to connect on my morning Lync calls. Then Leo said “Look above you!” and then I saw the light. Like literally. He asked me (for a change) to take a picture, as opposed to him rolling his eyes over my need to capture a moment.
  2. The house under construction – now this is cool. It’s backlit, and it was a bit challenging to really capture it. But what I love about this image is how each floor shows an entirely different stage in the construction. Who was working on it? The couple, most likely the owner who live in it. I love Mexico.
  3. Each day Leo takes me to shore on the dinghy, each night he picks me up on the beach to take me back home. On our journey back home one night – our friends yelled for us to stop by for drinks. I captured this sunset as we catted. Have I mentioned already how much I love Mexico?
  4. The Kissing Lane – smoochy smoochy in Bucerias. I love this little town, but hate how the local economy depends largely on tourism, and their purchases of local souvenirs. I can’t imagine kissing in this lane while everybody hounds us “Lady! Lady! Come look! You buy!” oh yeah, they call female tourists “Lady” and that part is a hoot. I think they all went to the same English Second Language classes…
